Chapter 1

“Chad, the last one is on your left!” I yell into my mic. His bulky avatar takes out his sniper and aims for the enemy hiding behind the rock. The enemy can’t see him through the bushes, Chad takes the shot and the round ends.

Chad’s voice comes through my headphones. “Nikki, aren’t you going to change your username any sooner?”

“Nah. I do suck at Rules Of Survival.” I reply.

He laughs. “Well, I can bet that you are better than legit every single girl on the universe.” He’s always this cheesy, but still the best partner on the battlefield, and my greatest pal in real life.

“Sweetie Nikki, your brother wants to have a turn on the computer.” Mom’s irritating but angelic voice floats down from the stairs. It is MY computer.

I return to my game and tell Chad that I have to go.

“Ha, I need to as well cause this internet café closes damn early. Another round tomorrow? It’s the last week of summer holidays.” He asks me.

“Nup,” I reply, “I’m having a girls day out at a beach tomorrow. I need to be ‘social’.”

“When’s the next ‘Chad special’ appearing on your channel?” He asks with a mock tone. We laugh, then say a quick goodbye.

I log out, take my headphones off and rush upstairs before my mom has to shout again. Ulysses is already waiting for me at the doorway with a huge grin on his face.

“Can you play the grey dinosaur game with me, Kiki?” He looks at me with puppy eyes and lead him back to my computer. I lift him on my lap and load the game, then watch him play.

The game is simple, the ‘grey dinosaur’ needs to jump over the obstacles. If you hit a obstacle, well, you die. My brother is pretty decent at this game, especially for a 4 year old.

Half an hour passes and we are ready to leave the basement. Ulysses asks me if he can play the X-box when I’m not at home tomorrow. I tell him, “It’s up to Mom, your eyes need to be good, so you can’t play too many games.” He rolls his eyes, and we head upstairs to the living room.

Mom sees us and shakes her head.

“You play too much, just hope you focus more on your studies my girl.” she says. Mom honestly doesn’t need to worry about that.

Ulysses stays downstairs with Mom and I head upstairs to my room.

Picking up my phone, I flick through the latest tea in the past couple of hours.
